- Building bridges through Wikipedia and the cultural heritage of Mexico City: the experience from a “Non-Formal Education” course
- Education, GLAM / Heritage / Culture
Type of session:
This work aims to highlight and share different examples of activities related to Wikipedia, that have been held in a university course of “Non-Formal Education”, which is part of the Pedagogy career curriculum, at the Philosophy and Letters School in the National Autonomous University of Mexico. Music (rock, specifically), mexican gastronomy, cinema, traditional legends, myths and sayings/proverbs, collective mapping, editathons, and museums, are some of the many topics that are explored in the class with the involvement of Wikipedia as a significant and pretty valuable resource for learning and sharing. I also pretend to highlight some of the results and the challenges I face as a teacher, in order to improve my practice.
